A lot of flagship smartphones these days are boasting that their phones are being powered by the latest chipsets and packing a ton of RAM (some are even rumored to be packing as much as 10GB), but if you can’t even access the contents on your phone in a timely manner, what’s the point, right?

Unfortunately for some Pixel 2 XL owners, it seems that some of them are experiencing an issue with the lock screen where they are encountering a lag after unlocking the screens of their phones. The good news is that if you were one of those affected, it seems that Google is aware of the issue and has confirmed that a fix is in the works.

For those unfamiliar with the problem, basically some Pixel 2 XL owners were reporting that following an Android security update that was released in June, they started to experience an issue where after they unlocked the screen of their phones, there was a bit of a lag which we imagine is pretty annoying.

According to Google, “The problem was caused as a side effect of a fix introduced in June SMR in order to fix cases of bright flashes before entering Always On Display for displays on certain (isolated) devices. The fix will be reverted in July SMR to address the slow unlock regression. A proper fix for the original issue which won’t cause slow unlock side effect will be available on P release”
